PURPOSE

No aircraft defines the role of close air support better than the Marine AH-1 Super Cobra/Viper. Whether it's providing cover for advancing ground forces or escorting assault support helicopters en route to a landing zone, the AH-1Z is called on when Marines need firepower from the air.

 

FEATURES

Able to project multiple missiles, rockets and 20mm cannon fire on targets otherwise inaccessible, the AH-1 has played a major role in every U.S. military conflict since Vietnam. Today it continues to provide the precision, armament and tactical situational awareness to fight in close proximity with our Marines below. Equipped with enhanced navigation displays that distinguish friends from enemies, data transfer systems that deliver real-time aerial reconnaissance to Marines on the ground and composite rotor blades and tail booms that can withstand 23mm cannon fire, the Marine AH-1 is the perfect example of why Marine Aviation has been called "flying artillery."

ROLES

Just a few of the enlisted roles include:

  • Helicopter Mechanic, UH/AH-1
  • Helicopter Airframe Mechanic, UH/AH-1
  • Aircraft Communications/Navigation/Electrical/Weapon Systems Technician, UH/AH-1
